  1. Sturrock V Brown After 161 Games

    Not sure if this has been mentioned prior, but I have just noticed that Saturdays game against Walsall was Phil's 161st game in charge of Southend, which was the same amount of games Paul Sturrock was in charge for also. (according to Wikipedia). The stats over both their reigns are almost...

Living in French France i would stay here and put the whole of shrimperzone up just like pubey and let you all eat my waitrose...
  3. Wycombe warning

    So, you play the mighty Wycombe Whingers synchronized diving team, eh? Some of you will know this but, for those who have not had the "pleasure" of watching Wycombe, you are in for a dreadful shock. Their stock-in-trade is to dive and feign injury on a truly industrial scale. Astonishingly, they...

    European Athletics Championships

    I've always enjoyed this event. Partly as it is usually a rich source of medals for Great Britain, but also as it provided some of my earliest sporting memories back in 1986 - Roger Black winning the 400m as a 20 year old, Coe leading a British 1-2-3 in the 800m and Brian Whittle's shoe coming...

    Ron martin and other shoddy chairman

    Saw this and was thinking that ronald would be a shoe in , but apparently there are some bigger bell wizards out there. http://www.ftbpro.com/posts/tristan.cross/439604/twelve-worst-owners-and-chairmen-in-british-football-history
  7. Freddy

    Freddy was scoring most of our goals , then he got injured. Came on as sub at Burton and got the winner. Started as sub on Friday night. All facts and all accepted by most of the fans , without any complaints directed towards Brown. However , given that most believe ( as do I ) that he is our...

  9. Manager of the Month

    According to my very brief look at it I'd say PS is a shoe in for Manager of the Month but please correct me if I'm wrong!
  10. Evening chaps, Watford fan here

    Delighted to hear that Britt Assombalonga is doing the business for you so far this season. Currently at Watford we have a good forward line of Vydra, Deeney, Foresteri, Beleck and Geijo, so actually a season loan at Southend would be great for both him and you. What have been his biggest...

    Agents Fee's...

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10444~2516297,00.html So we paid £27,049.61 in agents fee's for the period Oct '10-Sept '11. Which is nearly 50% down on the previous couple of seasons, I think?... Just shows that you can build a decent team, on a shoe string.
  13. Somerset Ex-TTB

    Are we a shoe in for the play-offs already?

    Sitting on 38 points with 29 games to go and 9 points clear of 8th place, I had a thought about how many points we would need to get in those 29 games to at least make the play offs. Without doing any research at all, I thought that 72 points would be enough? (Maybe someone with a bit more...

    4-4-2 top richest 100

    Frankie's back!! 59. Frank van Wezel £72m Southend Age 69 (Re-entry) The Shrimpers have plans to leave Roots Hall and move into a proposed 22,000-seater at Fossetts Farm. This would please Frank van Wezel, a long-time Southend director. He comes from the Netherlands, but he has made his...

    Gents shoes - slip ons v lace ups.

    What type of formal shoe do you go for? I am a 100% lace ups man because I think slip ons are just too used car dealer/Nick Berry as Simon Wicks circa 1986. In my opinion the only people that can pull off the slip on look are the likes of Tony and Junior Soprano.

    Cricket Shoes

    I am looking to buy some Nike Air Zoom Yorker/Pace cricket shoes. Any shoes that you cricketers would recommend to an opening bowler? Good sites to buy from?

    Southend 'tache XI

    The beard XI (mascot Mark Beard) need a team to play. Obviously Billy Best had a goalscoring record nearly as legendary as his 'tache, but otherwise I think the pickings may be thin as it seems to be more quantity over quality. Excluding the late Jimmy Walker's pathetic effort, was Donut the...

    SZ Novella - Chapter 8

    Chapter Eight - The Reduced Hypertherpia of the Closed Mancharia Osymandus pulled on a pair of heavy trousers and sucked the fetid air in through his teeth. Behind him, Rick Astley's body congealed silently on the floor, but of all the contributory factors to the awful smell in the room, he was...

    Club Hospitality - Blues Lounge

    This Saturday I went to the game via one of the Club's hospitality packages. It was a one off as a friend was back in this country getting married (SamuraiBlue) and we thought we would do something a bit different. Have to say I was very impressed. I had some reservations based on a corporate...

    The Apprentice - week 1

    Whoever the 16th person was who "bottled it" before the tv stage, he enjoyed more air time than the majority of those on the men's team - Howard excepted. Tonight was all about the meltdown in the girls' team. Stepping up to the plate in week 1, Mona (surely the a and n are the wrong way round?)...
